Brewster Partners - exceeding expectations

We are delighted to have worked in collaboration with Bury Hospice to assist with identifying and appointing their new Chief Executive.

It is through a close, consultative approach that we were able to build a comprehensive understanding of Bury Hospice’s expectations and help identify such a high calibre candidate who is suited to the Hospice’s vision and ambitions. 

Further to the appointment of Helen Lockwood, we would like to wish her the very best in the role. Helen’s wealth of experience and sector knowledge will prove a valuable asset as Bury Hospice looks to explore, shape and deliver additional ways to provide support to the community they serve.


We were grateful to receive the following feedback:

Brewster Partners recently collaborated with Bury Hospice to appoint the new Chief Executive. The Brewster Partners team worked closely with all stakeholders to ensure they understood the candidate profile required to realise our ambition of being the hub for providing great Palliative and End of Life Care as well as expanding our services to reach more people in Bury. The knowledge, advice and steer Brewster Partners provided throughout the process was of the highest standard and exceeded all expectations of the Board. In appointing Helen Lockwood, who is incredibly well respected across Greater Manchester and has a wealth of ‘invaluable’ knowledge of the health and social sector, Brewster Partners provided an individual we are sure we would not have found without them.

Having worked with Brewster Partners previously in the private sector world I had always been delighted by the their approach and the calibre of candidates they provided. With high expectations of the type of individual we were looking to appoint at Bury Hospice, this was certainly one of the toughest assignments they have undertaken. The level of care, attention and detail that was put into this piece of work was over and beyond my expectations and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a business that delivers with integrity.
